Kanopy: Streaming Films Resource Now Available

Horn Library now provides access to a Netflix-like streaming video resource called Kanopy.  Kanopy is an on-demand streaming media service that offers award-winning collections including titles from PBS, BBC, Criterion Collection, Media Education Foundation, as well as foreign films and more.  It covers all disciplines and all films come with performance rights.  It’s easy to browse the selection of videos, create clips and playlists, post links to Blackboard, etc.

If you’d like to take a look, here’s the link.   This link also resides, along with all our other online resources, on the alphabetical list of databases page on the library website.

To create playlists, set up an account by clicking “Sign in” and then “Sign up with your email address in seconds.”

Please note that Kanopy does not include Hollywood movies; for those we have a different streaming service called Swank Digital Campus.  Please contact Martha Burk ( if you would like to use a Hollywood movie for instruction or on-campus performance.
